An injury crisis for Barnsley has eased just as they prepare to meet Charlton: Tykes
I've never been to Oakwell and my knowledge of Barnsley is limited which reminds me of Ali G's remark about Wales. 'I don't know much about it, but I hear it's crap.' In my first year at uni I shared a room with 'chuffing' Keith from Barnsley. He was a fanatical road cyclist and this involved the bike being constantly dismantled and reassembled in the room.
Positives for the Addicks are the loan extension for Soares and the return to fitness of Zheng Zhi. However, a draw will be a good result, but not good enough.
I was watching a pre-season Rules game from the MCG (where I have seen a live game) on television last night. A shame that Carlton lost the 'h' in their name otherwise they would be a good team to support. Anyway, they devastated the Kangaroos.
A couple of ideas to adopt from Rules. Could we have goal line officials who give a two handed signal for a goal accompanied by a stern look which they must practice in the mirror? On the other hand, they could be under employed. And could we have throw ins taken by linos over their heads with their back to the pitch? With some linos this could add a comedy element to the game.
